Green Projects for 2012: Recycle Soap and Candles
Tip #3: Revive soap scraps and candle remnants.

Bits of bar soap can also be recycled through a simple process using water and heat. Techniques vary, but we like National Geographic's instructions for making candles and Planet Green's ideas for reusing soap.
